Strong Magma Flows into Burger King Japan

Akihabara News (Tokyo) — Burger King Japan has unveiled its Strong Magma Super One Pound Beef Burger, the self proclaimed spiciest “meat wall.”

The Strong Magma comes as a new addition to the Strong Super One Pound series launched last year. This line of burgers includes the Extreme One Pound Beef Burger that replaced buns with two additional patties.

Burger King Japan celebrated the commencement of the one pound burgers with a limited time all-you-can-eat challenge.

The new Strong Magma will only be available until March 11, and even then only after 2pm each day. It may not be available in some locations.

The sandwich has four 100% all-beef patties that are cooked with Burger King’s signature flame grill.

The spice is similar to Burger King’s Spicy Yakuyoke Whopper, which they claim wards off evil spirits. The burger is also seasoned with garlic flakes coated in a sauce that uses powder from Gion Ajiko in Kyoto. The seasoning is known as “Japan’s spiciest golden pepper.” Burger King claims that this sandwich is the hottest in “the history of Super One Pound!”

Apart from the garlic, the sandwich features another original sauce made with doubanjiang.

From the top down, the Strong Magma includes a sesame seed bun, onions, original hot sauce, patties, spicy garlic flakes, two slices of cheddar cheese, and a bun at the base. If this list of ingredients sounds like too much of a challenge, Burger King Japan is offering to serve the sandwich cut in half.

For those who try to conquer the Strong Magma, Burger King is offering an original sticker as a reward that features the logo and reads “I did it.”

The meat behemoth is priced at ¥1,380 on its own or ¥1,680 for a combo including fries and a drink.
